Success
The secret to cutting perfect bars is to line the pan with foil so you can lift out the baked bars. Spray the foil as directed in the recipe.
Preparation Directions
1.Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin to make about 1 1/2 cups.
2.In medium bowl, mix cereal, brown sugar and baking soda; stir in 1/4 cup melted butter until well mixed. Reserve 1/3 cup cereal mixture for topping. Press remaining cereal mixture evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 5 minutes. Cool 5 minutes.
3.Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir brownie mix, 1/4 cup melted butter and the eggs until well blended. Drop batter by small spoonfuls over baked layer. Carefully spread over baked layer; sprinkle with reserved 1/3 cup cereal mixture.
4.Bake 30 to 34 minutes or until brownies look dry and set. (Brownies will be soft; do not use toothpick test). Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. For brownies, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store tightly covered.
